    That's not true at all. You do realize 35mm film can be scanned at resolutions from 4K to higher. Filmmakers were scanning 35mm film at 2K 20 plus years ago before 4k became the standard. Most featured films are being shot in 4K or higher. Some filmmakers however are still using the older Arri Alexa models that shoot in 2.8K. Overall there is a ton of content being shot in 4K. The broadcast standard ATSC 3.0 (4K OTA) is just around the corner. Fox, NBC, and others will be rolling out ATSC 3.0 next year. Chicago and Dallas already have OTA 4K channels.

    Where are the moral outrage police when you need them, to cast scorn and “disgust” at a corporation for selling such a big ticket item, the way they do with Apple? Hmm...
    Dude, be patient. I only just saw the article now... 

    Ahem.

    Whoever spends $70,000 is insane and lives in an entirely different world from the rest of us. Not sure why things like this are even put to market. Disgusting.

     This isn't true. Don't say this anymore.  Red, Arri. Blackmagic Design and countless other systems have been acquiring at 4K 4.4.4 video for quite some time.  There's lots of 4K content and today's acquisition strategy is often 4k/6k/8k.  

    The reason why 4K content isn't everywhere is more about distribution networks.
